Artist Lorne Honyumptewa has outdone even himself on this magnificent new piece! Inspired by working outdoors in the southwest spring, he has used his signature exquisite fine line work to depict the return of life to the land. He has arranged traditional representations of squash blossoms, clouds and rain with realist vines, bees and a butterfly in an intricate and sumptuous composition. The symmetry of the design gives balance and stability, yet he plays with this by placing the pollinators off center and flying or facing in varying directions.
The story is of the ancient connection of earth and life as the heavens water the land so the plants return and the pollinators help turn the plants into food. It is a life cycle that is sacred to traditional peoples who live off the land and Lorne depicts this reverence with great artistry. All this on the rich, energetic bubble gum pink silk makes for a winning combination of beauty and boldness, just like spring itself!
Wear "Pollination" over a column of black with a Navajo squash blossom necklace or chunky modern jewelry and celebrate the magic of pollination and the return of spring.

Lorne Honyumptewa's Bio

Hopi/Picuris Pueblo, New Mexico

“I am a Hopi/Picuris 2D artist and illustrator. I was born in 1979 in Tuba City, Arizona. My mother is Diane Caroline Sine, from Picuris Pueblo, and she works with traditional micaceous pottery. My father is a well-known Hopi Kachina doll carver from Lower Moenkopi, Stetson Honyumptewa. I have been into art all my life, growing up with my father especially. I got a lot of inspiration from him and being around galleries that featured all types of art. Looking at Southwest Art magazines always got my mind going, especially natural scenes, sunsets and landscapes.”

“I graduated from Pojoaque High School in New Mexico and realized I had a talent that I was too modest to announce or display. I wanted to go to the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe, but Pojoaque High School was as far as I got. I like to work with pen and pencil for fine details and creating art that satisfies the eyes and takes time and energy from the mind, body and spirit. I want my art to bring good energy and vibes to all who encounter it, for we are all one.”

“In 2008, I got my first blue ribbon for a pen and ink drawing of Kachinas in a ceremony at one of the Hopi Mesas. I got pumped up to do more, and add color to it, and got another blue ribbon for a White Bear Kachina in a winter wonderland in the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff, Arizona. Since then, I have been in Indian Markets at Santa Fe.”
